I was under the impression that TTl flash mode requires only CW or Spot metering and that the camera shifts from Matrix to Spot/CW when the flash is set to regular TTl mode.

It didn't work, and I got annoying ambient light (with a strange coloration) by setting only the flash and not the camera. What are the steps to take to ensure regular TTl (no BL)?

Flash is an SB800 in the shoe of a D7000.
